Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival
Posted on March 16th, 2023 by Kelly O'Toole
This festival unofficially began in 1924 as a Coast Guard personnel-only picnic when the local Coast Guard station held rowing competitions for those service members stationed in Grand Haven. Today the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival has become a premier event with attendance of over 350,000 people, including the nation’s highest ranking Coast Guard dignitaries from Washington, D.C.
You won’t want to miss this 10-day festival with over 35 events focused on honoring the men and women of the Coast Guard!
